Go paperless with a newly added fillable form! This is a helpful tool designed to break the ice as you conduct your instrument petting zoo with students! Link students with instruments using their personality traits! In this questionnaire students will be grouped into 6 personality categories that are characteristic to each instrument. Group 1: Flute, Group 2: Double Reeds/Horn, Group 3: Single Reeds, Group 4: Trumpet, Group 5: Low Brass, and Group 6: Percussion.
During the instrument selection process there are times that students score really well on several instruments. This tool can help narrow down the instrument selection process. This questionnaire has 27 fun and engaging questions. Attached is a matrix that lists core personality traits of the 6 instrument groups.
The director would read the student responses and determine which personality trait is most applicable by checking the appropriate box at the bottom of the sheet. Each box is numbered according to the 6 instrument groups. If the personality trait cannot be determined, the director would select the 7th box for that student. Be sure to tell students not to work below the STOP sign. For optimum use, record this data before conducting your instrument selection tests.
